Synopsis: It’s been almost a year since eighteen-year-old Ella Rodriguez was in a car accident that left her crippled, scarred, and without a mother. After a very difficult recovery, she’s been uprooted across the country and forced into the custody of a father that abandoned her when she was a young child. If Ella wants to escape her father’s home and her awful new stepfamily, she must convince her doctors that she’s capable, both physically and emotionally, of living on her own. The problem is, she’s not ready yet. The only way she can think of to start healing is by reconnecting with the one person left in the world who’s ever meant anything to her—her anonymous Internet best friend, Cinder.LISA: Hey everyone!!! I'm SUPER EXCITED to introduce two amazing characters from author Kelly Orams latest release - Cinder & Ella! I had the pleasure of meeting these two a few months ago and then recently while asking them what they think of their book being out released into the world. I know I'm excited for everyone to read their story... so let's get started and see what these two have to say.....
…Hollywood sensation Brian Oliver has a reputation for being trouble. There’s major buzz around his performance in his upcoming film The Druid Prince, but his management team says he won’t make the transition from teen heartthrob to serious A-list actor unless he can prove he’s left his wild days behind and become a mature adult. In order to douse the flames on Brian’s bad-boy reputation, his management stages a fake engagement for him to his co-star Kaylee. Brian isn’t thrilled with the arrangement—or his fake fiancée—but decides he’ll suffer through it if it means he’ll get an Oscar nomination. Then a surprise email from an old Internet friend changes everything.
EllaTheRealHero: Hey everyone! I’m Ella, average teenager and book blogger extraordinaire.
Cinder458: And I’m Brian, star of The Druid Prince, and all of all Ella’s fantasies.
EllaTheRealHero: Right. He wishes.
Cinder458: I don’t wish, I know. Anyway, I play Prince Cinder in the upcoming movie The Druid Prince. It’s a film adaptation of the first book in the best fantasy book series of all time, The Cinder Chronicles by LP Morgan.
EllaTheRealHero: Definitely the best book series ever.
Cinder458: And now it’s going to be the greatest movie of all time.
EllaTheRealHero: Let me guess: because you’re the star?
Cinder458: Well I am perfect for the role. Plus, I’m the book’s biggest fan. Who else could have played Cinder as well as me?
EllaTheRealHero: Fine, you’re perfect for the part, but I have to argue that you’re the book’s biggest fan. I believe, that title belongs to me.
Cinder458: Actually, it doesn’t. I love everything about the book. You hate the ending and would totally rewrite it if you could. That makes me the bigger fan.
EllaTheRealHero: That’s not true. I love the ending. I just think Cinder picked the wrong girl.
Cinder458: No he didn’t. You were just on the wrong “team” as you bloggers like to say. Hey, have you ever noticed that that happens to you a lot?
EllaTheRealHero: It does not.
Cinder458: Oh, please. Jacob? Puck? Gale? You even wanted Valerie to end up with Isaac in V is for Virgin. Nobody wanted Virgin Val to end up with the boring church boy over the rock star.
EllaTheRealHero: Well, Kyle was a jerk! Val deserved better. Plus, the guy who played Isaac in the movie was hotter than the actor who played Kyle.
Cinder458: And you say I’m shallow. Hey, wait a minute. I played Kyle in the V is for Virgin movie!
EllaTheRealHero: I know.
Cinder458: What??? You seriously thought that guy was hotter than me???
EllaTheRealHero: LOL!!! You are so easy!!!
Cinder458: You’re such a brat!
EllaTheRealHero: That’s why you love me. :)
Cinder458: *sigh* That is true. You’re the only woman in the world who gives me crap. And you’re right. I love you for it. Anyway, enough of that. We’re supposed to be introducing our book and we’re failing miserably.
EllaTheRealHero: Oh yeah. Hey, maybe we should just let Lisa introduce it. She’s an amazing blogger. She’s the one who inspired me to start blogging, you know. I’m sure she’ll do the book way more justice than either of us could.
Cinder458: I don’t know about that. Lisa’s awesome, but you’re a pretty great blogger too.
EllaTheRealHero: You’re biased.
Cinder458: Maybe a little. Hey, you want to go get some dinner and have a Legend of the Seeker marathon?
LISA: Uh… guys?
So, now you've all had just a taste of what you can look forward to AND SO MUCH MORE in the book! BUT... they've left it up to me to introduce the book, thanks guys!
